Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has come under attack for the government's stance on green power, energy comparison customers might be interested to learn.
The Liberal Democrat leader was asked to clarify his position on the UK's sustainable future by West Lindsey councillor Reg Shore, who asked whether the government is "just playing" at encouraging the green energy industry.
According to the Lincolnshire Echo, Mr Shore wrote to Mr Clegg after climate change minister Greg Barker announced updates to feed-in tariffs rates for solar energy projects.
Mr Shore said: "Clearly, Greg Barker's announcement to curtail subsidies for feed-in tariffs from August 1st means that big projects, the ones that could give us the upper hand in actually attaining a sustainable future with energy, could be stopped.
"We want a situation where the UK is not relying on unstable countries for energy supplies," he added.
Feed-in tariffs were introduced to encourage more householders and businesses to generate their own green electricity with a financial incentive.
